Makers Market at Tech Valley Center of Gravity

Tech Valley Center of Gravity is thrilled to participate in the 41st annual Troy Victorian Stroll on Sunday, December 3rd from 11am-5pm.

During this year’s Stroll, we will have a variety of festivities:

  • We will be hosting a Maker's Market on the first floor, featuring locally owned small businesses that create handmade goods.
    • Longtime downtown Troy business Spillin' the Beans Coffeehouse will be doing a pop-up cafe during the market, selling their hot coffee and espresso drinks!
  • There will be a STEAM-Powered Pop-Up activity (DIY Kaleidoscopes!) in the THINQubator for children ages 4-12 and their families. $5 suggested donation.
  • The entire space, including our downstairs shops, will be open for self-guided tours! TVCOG Members will be in various shops to answer questions, do demonstrations, or lead short activities. In addition, we have a collection of featured member projects that have been placed around the space.
    • Don't forget to check outside on 3rd St for our largest featured member project- a retrofitted bus! The bus will be open for tours during the Stroll!

STEAM Powered Pop-Up: DIY Kaleidoscopes

  • Children ages 4-12 and their families are invited to join us at Tech Valley Center of Gravity for a fun, creative hands-on project. These mind-expanding projects help children discover creative play through science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics. During this special pop-up event, we will be making kaleidoscopes! Learn more here.
